I made my way to the second floor anticipating in previewing his collection, since this is my first time seeing the F/W 2011 pieces. On my way there were a few pieces that instantly caught my eye. “Yes, this is it!!” I thought to myself as I walked passed the entrance and into the reception area. I was greeted by Abbey Slitor, Marketing Manager of Saks Fifth Avenue, who kindly welcomed me and showed me the way to today’s preview. I was offered champagne, which I happily accept and took pics. One dress that made me do a double take was the dress above. It reminded of a dress Leighton Meester wore to a premiere for the film ‘The Roomate’.
That dress was also there. A eager customer was trying on the dress and a few items from his F/W 2011 collection. A few short minutes after I arrived, Then walked in Derek Lam in converse sneakers and a laidback attitude. He quickly made the rounds around the room and greeted each customer and writers/media alike.
I introduced myself and congratulated him on another successful collection. Photo of me and Derek below:
